“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed.”― Mahatma Gandhi
The Greatest Wonder
If the Earth were only a few feet in diameter, floating a few feet above a field somewhere, people would come from everywhere to marvel at it.
People would walk around it marvelling at its big pools of water,its little pools and the water flowing between the pools.
People would marvel at the very thin layer of gas surrounding it and the water suspended in the gas.
The people would marvel at all the creatures walking around the surface of the ball,
and at the creatures in the water.
The people would declare it as sacred because it was the only one, and they would protect it so that it would not hurt.
The ball would be the greatest wonder known, and people would come to pray to it, to be healed, to gain knowledge, to know beauty and to wonder how it could be.
People would love it, and defend it with their lives because they would somehow know that their lives, their own roundness, could be nothing without it.
If the Earth were only a few feet in diameter.

When taking care of the earth becomes the point of discussion, one feels rather overwhelmed and helpless.
Everywhere….most people seem to be plundering the earth.
“What can I do” ????
Actually a lot.
Make time to connect with the earth on a daily basis,even if it is just for a few minutes.
Send Mother Earth all the love you can.
If not you/me,then who ?
